ACL INJURIES

Expert in ACL Treatments

ACL Injury Overview

As the largest joint in the body, and one of the most complex, the knee plays an important role in one’s everyday life. If you are experiencing knee pain, simple tasks such as walking and standing may become difficult, so it’s important to diagnose and seek treatment in a timely manner.

About Knee Pain.

Because of the knee’s placement, it tends to get a great deal of use whether you keep a very active lifestyle, or one that tends to be more sedentary. The knee is primarily comprised of three main bones: the femur (thighbone), tibia (shinbone), and patella (kneecap). In addition, there are tendons and ligaments that help connect the bones to other bones and muscles as well as cartilage that can help your knee bones move smoothly across one another.

If any of these structures are injured or weakened, the result is a pain radiating in your knee region. Knee pain can also be triggered by other problems that can affect the area, such as a foot or ankle injury. This pain will continue to be aggravated due to exercise or general activity over time, and may require advanced treatment or surgery if it becomes too severe.

Knee pain can commonly be grouped into a few different categories including acute injuries and overuse injuries. However, it’s important to seek help from a qualified orthopedic doctor to properly diagnose the injury prior to treatment. The below examples are only a small percentage of the possible causes.

If you are currently experiencing knee pain, you are most likely seeking quick resolve from the issue. While there are many opportunities for prevention, the level of severity will determine any possible treatment options
